Acquiring its name from the fruit that Tambun, Ipoh, is famous for, THE POMELO lies within The Banjaran Hotsprings Retreat. One of the important components of this concept is spa cuisine – light, healthy and nutritious dishes. The POMELO innovatively incorporates the pomelo fruitinto refreshing spa cuisine for an awakening of the senses. THE POMELO’s spa cuisine menu explodes with flavours of organic fruits, vegetables, fresh seafood and premium poultry. No artificial seasoning or flavorings will be used in the cooking or preparation of food but lots of local fresh spices and ingredients are used instead.

Right in the middle of nature

I must say that the ambience and service supercede its food quality. The ambience makes you feel that you are right in the middle of nature and it has a distinct zen quality to it.

The service was excellent. There was a staff which was always ready to attend to you when you needed something, at the same time made sure he gave my wife and i enough space for privacy. The Chef came to ask if everything was alright and he did it from time to time. It shows that customer satisfaction was very... More

The 3 course dinner was awesome in a very romantic setting. Beautifully set up. A must try is the sea bass. Just love it! Chef Felix had done a very good job! We will be back.

This was a truly relaxing experience! The villa is just amazing, with your own hot spring spa off your bedroom on one side and your own swimming pool off the other side. The spa treatments are tailored to needs and you feel like you have a new body. As for the meals, the Pomelo restaurant produces some for the finest... More

It's the only restaurant in this hot spring retreat!! Fantastic starters with tiny portions and we both ended having 4 starters.... But really delicate and delicious!! The pan fried lobster main dish was also very good!! Worth to try!!

The setting is incredibly beautiful. The rooms are amazing. We visited them last year, but never stayed there. We ate in the Cellar, which is in a beautiful natural cave. The only disappointment was the food. The beef arrived cold. The dessert was pretty awful and our Chinese friends found each course ridiculously small.
